The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with its Distinguished Alumnus, Mr. Sharad Sanghi (B.Tech., Electrical Engineering, 1989), to establish the Centre of Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases at the Institute. The Centre has been set up through the generous contribution of Mr. Sanghi and his family.
SCAN envisions creating novel tools and biomarkers for the early detection, diagnosis, and prognosis of neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Frontotemporal Dementia. Our findings can then be applied to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
The Sunita Sanghi Centre of Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases (SCAN) has been established through the generous donation of the Institute’s Distinguished Alumnus, Mr. Sharad Sanghi (B.Tech., EE, 1989), and his family, in memory of his mother, Mrs. Sunita Sanghi.
Sanghi, who is currently the managing director of NTT Ltd in India, has pledged a generous donation to the “Sunita Sanghi Centre of Ageing and Neurodegenerative Diseases” (SCAN) in memory of his late mother Mrs. Sunita Sanghi.
